Farmers demand motion in opposition to Zira liquor manufacturing unit
Amritsar, January 4
The activists of Bharti Kisan Union Ekta Sidhupur burnt an effigy of the state authorities outdoors Corridor Gate right here on Wednesday, demanding motion in opposition to an alcohol manufacturing unit in Zira.
The BKU activists said that the motion was held as per the decision given by the sanjha morcha of assorted farmer unions. They said that the residents of Zira had been protesting in opposition to the mentioned manufacturing facility for the previous six months and the federal government appears to be supporting the manufacturing facility homeowners not the residents, who’re struggling as a result of alleged air pollution brought on by the manufacturing facility.
Palwinder Singh Mahal, district normal secretary, Bharti Kisan Union Ekta Sidhupur mentioned, “We wish to know from the state authorities and particularly from Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann that why he has modified his stand on these points. Earlier than elections, he was criticising such factories for floor water air pollution and the normal political events of patronising these factories, he now appears to be doing the identical.”
Mahal mentioned that the farmers would organise an enormous protest in Zira on January 9 to specific solidarity with the residents of the world, who’re protesting to avoid wasting floor water from being polluted. Elevating slogans in opposition to the state authorities, the farmers requested the federal government to face with the individuals and never the company homes. They demanded that each one sorts of pollution being thrown into water our bodies wanted to be checked.
